Moroccan Mint & Midnight Pomegranate w/ Loofah

April 16, 2015

I did this soap years ago (with a slightly different fragrance blend).  It was a popular one and I’m not sure why I stopped making it, but it’s back again!

Top Layer:

Midnight Pomegranate: sparkling notes of Citrus, Dewberry and Cassis to dress up the deeper notes of Musk, Sandalwood and Vanilla. This fragrance is deep and sensual with a sweet tart twist.

Bottom Layer:

Moroccan Mint: This is a scrumptious blend of Spearmint, Peppermint and Corn Mint, with just a touch of black tea sprinkled in to provide a stable, full bottom note. It’s cool, crisp, and refreshing.

Shredded Loofah in the bottom portion for some scrub exfoliating!

Honeysuckle

April 14, 2015

I’m in love with the design of this soap.  It’s simple and clean and with a reverse embed on the tops and bottom.  I used jojoba beads in the soap for some scrubby exfoliating!

Heavenly Honeysuckle: Notes of tuberose, nectarine, and cherry are picked up on first impression. However, the middle notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, and rose quickly make their appearance.  The base notes of sandalwood and musk give this fragrance a calming foundation.

Chocolate Espresso

I’m not a coffee person, but if you like chocolate and coffee then this soap is for you!  I can say I love the tiger swirl in this soap.  It came out better than I expected (even though the white changed to tan which I expected).

Irish Tweed Beer Soap

April 8, 2015

I made this soap last year and it was so popular I made it again this year (and a larger batch too)!  I fancied up the design a bit from last year, but it’s still the same great scent and made with a stout beer.  It’s a perfect St. Patty’s Day soap!

Pomegranate Cider

April 5, 2015

I won’t go into the amount of time it took to make this soap.  I’m thrilled with how it turned out, but oh my word!  Five alternating layers with a mica dusting in between each. I was ready to pull my hair out by the time I finished.  It was worth the worth though.  I think the soap is stunning.

Pomegranate Cider: hot cider spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.  The scent is then punched up with notes of pomegranate and strawberry.


Juniper Breeze

March 24, 2015

I was feeling like making a green soap the day I made this one.  Mixed up the greens and swirled the middle layer.  Very fun and cool looking soap.

Fun Tidbit: My friend and I were exiting the food store talking about my soaps and what to use a props and we were talking about the Juniper Breeze soap and not knowing what to use when my friend stops and looks down at the median and goes: “I think that’s Juniper.”  The entire parking lot was covered with juniper plants ha!  We stole a few sprigs.

Juniper Breeze: Lots of pine, ozone, green notes with hints of berry and fruits. A very clean, fresh scent.


Field of Flowers

February 21, 2015

I always have have an idea in mind for my finished soap when I start a batch.  Most of the time it doesn’t quite come out as I pictured it, but it’s close enough and it looks good.  This time I had this idea in my head and I was really, really skeptical that it would work, but I gave it a shot.

It worked.  I was so surprised that the soap came out just like I envisioned!

Step 1: Pipe the grass.

Step 2: Pipe the flowers.

Step 3: Add the white center, because the flowers just needed a little something more.
